The UFC double champ Conor McGregor has promised to visit India for the much-awaited launch of his Whiskey brand, Proper Twelve.
The global superstar found time last night to answer fan questions in a brief Q&A session. While he answered quite some interesting questions in this session, ranging from his next fight, toughest opponents, personal life and his business, there’s one good news for his Indian fans. Conor McGregor will soon come to India. The Irishman announced this while answering a fan question from India.
McGregor ventured into the liquor business a few years ago and has seen tremendous success all over the globe since then. The brand has not yet entered into the Indian market, which is one of the fastest-growing markets for Whiskeys in the world. When a fan pointed this out, Conor said the team is working on India, and that he will make a visit.
Thank you Sir. India has seen double digit growth in whiskey sales this past few year, and we are most certainly working on India for our future, yes.
And of course I’ll be there! India 🇮🇳 https://t.co/U3v5IUKWGR
